Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch

Recommended Posts

Brody Kunzmann, South Dakota 

I have previously used my Apple Watch paired with the GolfU app. So I would have something to baseline and compare against in terms of GPS watches. 

I currently determine distance through a combination of golf cart gps if available (but not always trusty), also through a bushnell range finder when I feel said cart is lying to me or cart GPS is not available. And of course there is the classic yardage markers and sprinkler heads, always a joy when it comes to that, old school.

2. Yes - I have used the Garmin S20 Watch and various other golf gps apps on my phone.

3. I currently use a combination of my rangefinder and my gps watch.  I’ll use my gps when I want to find the distance to a layup point,  hazard, bunker, basically anywhere where I can’t get a rangefinder to accurately measure distance.  I use my rangefinder when I’m hitting my approach shot to the green since many golf gps can’t accurately measure the exact distance to the pin.

I would love to be part of this test, however, I hate wearing things like watches, GPS, etc. when playing.

Good Luck to all who enter!!
